What Invisalign Teen Does

The Invisalign Teen aligners are virtually invisible, clear plastic aligners that are custom made to fit your, or your teens’, mouth and gradually shift the teeth into the orthodontist’s desired position. The Invisalign Teen system also includes Blue Dot Wear Indicators on each set of aligners to monitor wear. Plus, you’ll get six free replacement aligners, in case one is lost or damaged along the way. We know that teens in today’s world are just as busy, if not more busy, than adults. Between sports, music practice, after school clubs and movies on the weekend, these removable, easy-care aligners fit right into their lifestyle.

How Invisalign Teen Works

The process is as simple as this:

  • We take a 3D, computer generated model of your mouth and create a series of custom aligners to gradually move your teeth into place.
  • You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks.
  • You take them out to eat, drink, brush and floss.
  • Your teeth move gradually into desired, orthodontist recommended positions.
  • You visit our office every 8 – 10 weeks for progress checks.
  • Total treatment time averages 6 – 15 months.
  • You will wear 18 – 30 different aligners in that time.

Who Qualifies To Use Inviaslign Teen?

That’s the best part. Invisalign Teen can correct all the same issues braces can correct, without all the hassle. You can use Invisalign Teen if you have:

  • Crowded, overlapping teeth.
  • Widely spaced teeth with gaps.
